? >> well, i mean, there are 15,000 books about abraham lincoln, but his foreign policy is almost never treated. my book is about lincoln and u.s. foreign policy. part of the reason there hasn't been about lincoln's foreign policy in nearly 70 years. a human narrative about it. that's before the lincoln papers were released and library of congress in 1947. so there's a lot of water under the bridge since then. but i think one of the reasons there's no book about his foreign policy. he a strong and competent secretary of state. he didn't do everything in foreign affair. but the things he did do are really important. and so i've sliced it a little differently. i've taken look at the things that lincoln did do in foreign releases without saying he did everything or everything right, by the way. he made some mistakes too. >> was foreign policies all tied in to the civil war? >> well, we treat the civil war period in this. i have a chapter early on about the mexican war. lincoln was a freshman congressman in the house of representatives during the end of the mexican war in the 1840s. lincoln
and this is a kind introduction and that the senate was talking about, we're talking about foreign policy and we have a five-year project and we took a great week off and i went to indiana with him and spent 10 days in russia and the ukraine and it was a good trip. you have a good chance to write about the senator's career and accomplishments in one of the things he has done is left the senate. and this includes the internship programs he is working on. and i think there is a narrative about people who leave congress and become lobbyists and cash in. and we don't focus on that and not. so in this article i will focus on some of what we have done and that will be fun to do. and today what i'd like to talk about a senator john f. kennedy. there are some 40,000 books allegedly on jfk and you have to ask if there is a need for it another book on kennedy and i was the first threshold i had to cross. and i will explain to you why i thought it was and why i chose to write this book. and i wanted to describe what kind of senator that john f. kennedy was. and lastly wanted to go into a little bit more interes
he has been in valuable in terms of his interest in foreign policy. his work is a contributor to diplomats as well known to most of you. he has always been on hand, have found, in the subway of the senate. i can recall many, many days. i was not trying to date him, but i was certainly aware that he was tracking me down on that occasion. and himself really in his pursuit as a reporter, but likewise, piecing together bit by bit each story to make each thing with accuracy, and likewise, with grace. the book it he wrote about me was very generous, but nevertheless, i don't want you necessarily to skips certain chapters, but there are times in which john appears that i was not quite up to but i ought to be doing. and so, as a matter of fact, he has let me know that, and i have written that loud and clear. no way to retraces, of course, but at the same time palin it does lead you to believe that it is important to have great reporters around to emigrate coverage of the senate. it is important to the american people to have this kind of coverage. and john saw that he was the epitome
was not a master of the senate, but he was very active in foreign policy debates, very active in the discussion about vietnam, algeria, the soviet union. he also did something kind of interesting. he chaired a special committee to determine the five best senators in american history. this is a committee that lyndon johnson created for himself, grew tired of it, handed it off the kennedy. so this is really in some sense the one project kennedy was in charge of during his senate career. he took it very seriously, inquired of all the great historians in the country and spent about six, seven months digging into this. came up with a list of the five greatest senators, and it was something that came part of his identity as being a young politician but also someone very steeped in american history. >> the book came -- who came out of the top of that list? >> there was robert taft, but the big ones were john calhoun, daniel webster, henry clay, the pre-civil war era. securities committee quickly decide on the top three, webster, clay, calhoun. they had a longer debate on the next two, and even back at
of history. he also listened and learned on foreign policy. they had the decisions one was how to deal with the bay of pigs invasion and 51. second was how to deal with the missile crisis in 1962. the difference between night and day that went very badly. the support never materialized and was a terrible ambassador for the country and around the world but kennedy took responsibility for it. the historians that studied kennedy and in mine own research i found this to be true he concluded after the first crisis that he was in a bubble in the white house because he was listening to much to the so-called experts in the military and the intelligence community. and he realized that these people had their own little bubble that they were in and at that time they were basically hawks like you may remember some of them. but then he realized that they couldn't pay attention to them as much as they had so he brought in the inner circle at the cuban missile crisis he found his own judgment in he was skeptical and felt they led them astray before and the cuban missile crisis goes down in history as

brothers and the foreign-policy establishment the rule this country for the first half of the 20th century ride into the 1960s. what is remarkable about this is how small it was. and in those days american foreign policy was really a problem of a very small group of people that went to the same schools and they were all white protestant males and they were all wealthy and they all worked for the same law firms and the same investment banks and they all have the same outlook on the world. it was a very inbred group and they all shared the same view of the world. the dulles brothers were perhaps the ultimate exemplary part of that view. and now in my book i do not just talk about the dulles brothers as political figures but individuals. that is why take their story all the way back to early childhood and before. and they really were individuals of american history. and so let me tell you about the forces that shape them. because i think that these are also forces that shaped our country as well. the dulles brothers are us and we are them. they did not hijack america or american foreign polic
